A prospectus tells you (or perhaps warns you) of what you are going to get.
Merriam-Webster defines prospectus as “something that forecasts the course or nature of something. I like those two somethings.
Truth be told, I’m not good at forecasting and I’m not certain of what will appear in The Ambler. It will be a hodgepodge. It will be full of surprises, perhaps even to me.
The Oxford English Dictionary calls hodgepodge (or hotchpotch), “A heterogeneous mass or agglomeration; a medley, farrago, gallimaufrey” ― also, less pleasingly, “A clumsy mixture of ingredients.”
Nevertheless, here are a few of the things that I am confident will appear in The Ambler.
1. Attempts to explain what I think we should do to live a good life ― morals and manners, in short.
2. Poems that I have written and that have been written by others. I’m an old-fashioned fellow. I think poetry is still important in the internet age.
3. Photographs of things that catch my eye in Chatham, Ontario, Canada, where I live.
4. Condemnations and praises.

5. Objections to clumsy, unintelligent, and harmful policies of our governments.
6. Explanations of uncertain or misunderstood things.
